Salem's Little Theatre Folk
rlan 1 rv-outs
This Week
Through the persistent and consistent efforts of mem
bers of the Salem Drama league the day for a "little theatre"
for Salem seems to be miich closer this year, than last. Al
ready its members have picked the first play for this season,
its name being "Wappin' Wharf."
There is added inspiration of the wonderful work which
is being done in Portland with its Civic theatre. This year
after many years of struggling the little theatre folk of
x vi uauu ulB17tu i brisk chapters.
nave mrea a turecior mu
manager- This director is
Russel Spindler. These in
dustrious folk have found them
selves an old barn and have
changed it Into a studio and work
shop for the production of Civic
theatre offerings this year.
Recently Gilmor Brown, di
rector of the Pasadena. Califor
nia, Community playhouse, paid
a visit to Portland, and of course
hunted out the Civic theatre stu
dio. In an interview with Dean
Collins. Mr. Brown opened up a
beautiful Tista for the little thea
tre enthusiast, and the realization
of his remarks will be of such
far-reaching effect as to be worth
every small center, such as Salem
is now, to start working with the
goal in mind which he pictured.
He pictured the day when all
little theatre movements will be
come organised, just as Portland
is now, into the "Civic theatres of
the Pacific coast' or perhaps of
the United States and through
the cooperation of this organiza
tion give a repertory of plays
which will equal if not excel any
stage period which the United
States has ever witnessed. In ad
dition to this excellent presenta
tion which it would be possible
to offer the public, there would
be the added advantage that the
actors were "of the people" for
the civic organization is open to
anyone and everyone who has tal
ent, and as such offers untold op
portunities to those folk who find
their greatest expression in acting
and yet who do not want to give
up a home for the beaten path of
the stage actor.
Therein lies the greatest value
of the little theatre movement. It
opens up vast fields of expression
to folk who otherwise would nev
er find a satisfactory outlook for
the desire to "express themselves
as the Moroni Olsen players dem
onstrated was necessary in "Ex
pressing Willie."
In speaking of this "Civic The
atre league" Mr. Brown said that
"The advantage of developing a
league of Civic theatres, would
lie partly in the facilities it would
provide for co-operative buying
not only of properties, costumes
and equipment, but also of plays
for use in the civic (theatres. The
advantages that would emerge in
this rtspect alone are incalculable
One would surmise the play has
to do with pirates and sea faring
folk. By name the eight folk
are Patch Eye, the Duke, the Cap
tain, Red Joe, Darlin' Betsy, Old
Meg. Sailor Captain, and a group
of folk who will act as the sailors.
Patch has one eye and la the
typical lazy, amart-tongued Fal
staf of the play whom one can
pictnre rather successfully by this
remark "I loved Flint like a
brother. It was him knocked this.
out (pointing to his eye). But it
was Just in the way o' business.
We differed a leetle in the loot.
He was very persuasive, was ol'
Flint." And of him It could be
said there was nothing he hated
worse than the sight of an empty
The Duke is the Don Juan of
the wharf. Prond of his whis
kers, and his way with women.
His "timber leg" by which he is
always swearing gets plenty of
action. He has a flare for sing
ing, and of himself he remarks
once "I'm the artist o' that there
masterpiece. The Splttln' Devil!
I done it on a rainy mornin'.
Genius is queer."
Darlin is hard to suggest. She
is the sharp-tongued boarding
house lady of a wharf resort who
brings out many a witty situation.
Betsey is pretty, slender, and
holds sway quite unintentionally
over the hearts of all the sailors.
LThere is an interesting mystery
about her presence, as well as that
of Red Joe.
Joe is rather a poetical sailor.
He never fails to suggest the
beauty as well as the horror of
the situation. A few lines of his
"What do you know of scuttled
ships, and rascals ripped in fight?
Of the last bubbles that grin upon
the surface where a dozen men
have drowned " "
The captains are excellent por
trayals of the pirate captains
which we have been led to pic
tnre through Captain Kidd and
his kin.
Meg is the witch woman who
leads the events of the three acts

The work on "The Piper," the
play given last year by the "Salem
Drama league, developed some
extraordinary, results in the way
of "finding" ability in local folk.
It had an excellent community re
sult. The play this year will be of an
altogether different character.
"Wappin Wharf" is the humor
ous sort of play which starts folk
chuckling and keeps them com
fortably amused to the very end.
It is the first play ever written
by Charles S. Brooks. Every
lover of philosophical writings has
read his "Chimney-Pot Papers"

to his credit but "Wappin" Wharf

47 Years' Practice Taught
Dr. Caldwell
Many things
about Men
DR. CALDWELL loved people.
He studied the habits ef Ms
patients and tried to improve
their ways of living. His obser
vations over a long period of
time convinced him many people
were ruining- their health by a
careless choice of laxatives. Then
he determined to write a pre
scription which would get at the
cause of constipation and correct
it quickly and safely.
How successful his efforts were
is best shown by the fact that the
prescription he. wrote back in
1885 has become the world's most
popular laxative! He prescribed
a mixture of herbs and other pure
ingredients now known as Dr.
Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, in
thousands of cases where bad
breath, coated tongue, gas,
headaches, biliousness, and
lack , Of appetite,' or energy

Miss Marian McCleneh, na
tional president of Business
and Professional Woman's
Professional Women's clubs, has
been invited to attend the meet
ing of the Oregon Federation, B.
P. W. C, which will meet In Med
ford sometime in May.
Members of the Oregon federa
tion who have heard Miss Mc
Cleneh address the national group
aver that she is a most interest
ing speaker. She is past presi
dent of the Detroit, Mich., club
and for two years served as presi
dent of the Michigan federation.
In 1928-29 she was executive sec
retary of the national federation
and was general chairman of the
national convention which met in
Mackinac this summer.
Miss McCleneh has made a con
spicuous record in her work with
the Massachusetts Mutual Life In
surance company. Her father, the
late W. W. McCleneh was at one
time president of the company but
upon her graduation from Smith
college. Miss McCleneh refused to
go into the .headquarters office
at Springfield, where the way
would have been made easy for
her, but went instead to the De
troit office where she was com
paratively unknown. Here her
work was such that she soon be
came one of the leading insurance
women of the middle west.
A strong advocate of college
education for women, Miss Mc
Cleneh, in her work as national
president of the B. P. W. C, em
phasizes the fact that education
should be directed toward a defi
nite end daring college yean. Tie
cultivation of one talent as a
means of livelihood, whether
used for that purpose er not, she
holds to be the most valuable as
set any girl may have.
Miss McCleneh Is a woman of
unusual personal charm with a
background of fine old New Eng
land tradition. Members of the
Oregon federation of B. P. W. C.
are very anxious that she accept
